What Are You REALLY Hungry For?

When your body is hungry for more…Give it more.

If your body wants more, it doesn’t mean your body is bad. It doesn’t mean it is greedy. Or lazy, or stupid. Or too much. When your body is hungry for food – give your body more.

Because it simply means this: it is hungry for more.

When your heart wants more – give it more.

It doesn’t mean it’s too needy. Too insecure. Or too selfish. Nor greedy. It means it’s connecting with that which is so much larger and bigger than what you can see or touch. It simply means: it is hungry.

More is not a bad word. Neither is hungry. Or feeding, nourishing, healthy, or enough.

And more is not a desire to fight or battle or ignore. Less does not equal strength and denial does not deserve praise or accolades.

Shrinking is not a victory and disappearing should no longer be an option.

Words like gentle and kind and listen are the ones with power. Respect, honor, allow and trust deserve our attention. Only then can we achieve the ever elusive freedom our hearts really desire.

What does your body want?

So when your body wants rest, give it rest. And when it wants to move, do so gently. When your body wants more- give it more. Do so knowing you are taking the steps needed to give your heart, spirit and life more.

Because when your body wants more the reason is simple: it is hungry for more.
